For several people that supported our shelter dog efforts all year, I crocheted a Santa.
I love the look of my table set with crochet sundaes and fresh dahlias.
These adorable little girls were crocheted using a pattern from K and J Dolls. I posted them on Facebook for Friendship Day.
This little piggy serves no purpose except to be a pleasant thinking of you gift. How easy can it get? Hand embroider something the recipient really enjoys in life onto a piece of muslin, sandwich a...
I've been experimenting with crochet doggie sweaters lately. Pictured are the three I've completed so far. The pattern is for all one piece but I prefer the tummy strap with button closure for...
I love the look of these 1920 Cloches. The pattern was easy and free from Lion Brand.

I've added another ruffle scarf to my collection. This one was made to be a November present for my sister.
This crochet green mesh scarf is approximately 48 inches long. A pretty little dahlia flower adorns each end.
In each of these bags, the two fabrics are fused together.
This is a reversible, shoulder carry tote bag created in a Mexican folklorico Dias de los Meurtos cotton print.
This handcrafted bag is made from a Mexican folklorico cotton print. I had never heard of the Day of the Dead until moving to the little Mexico/US border town of Nogales, where we spent 12 years...
This is the fourth in my collection of ruffle scarves that I'm creating.
I love to crochet ruffle scarves. I'm working on a collection with these three finiished thus far. I have two more I'm working on to complete my collection.
